Cuba Highlights

Camaguey

Whether by swimming with sharks in the coast of Santa Lucia, calming thirst with refreshing Tinajon water after a colonial walk or witnessing an authentic Guajiro rodeo, Camaguey will exceed the expectations of Cuba travel lovers.

This unique city has one of the largest and best-preserved historical centres in Cuba. Colonial buildings blend with modern constructions on an irregular urban design. Tourists can have a view of this unique pattern from the roofs of some of Camagüey hotels or explore the winding streets on Bici-taxis, an innovative three-wheel cycle cab.

Camagüey has more than 20 kilometres of secluded beaches, protected by the coral reef that runs through the northern waters of Cuba. Santa Lucia beach is shaded by coconut palms and inviting waters, making this beach resort a magnet for those who love Diving, open sea Fishing and other nautical pursuits. However, Santa Lucia’s most exciting underwater attraction is sharks. In this region, without exaggeration, travellers can admire the local submarine flora and fauna in the company of harmless sharks who are fed by skilled divers.
